Around Park West

Several high-rises and condo buildings lie along Clark Street, offering prime views of the city and proximity to all that Park West has to offer.

While Park West is relatively small, the neighborhood still boasts a diverse food scene that’s sure to satisfy any appetite. A variety of international restaurants will settle cravings for Italian, Mexican, Japanese, and more. Just north of the community, Kuma’s Too brings the Avondale staple’s monstrous burgers to the east side. La Creperie, a longtime favorite for sweet and savory crepes, is also nearby.

As a prime location between Wrigleyville and the Loop, Park West attracts a mix of professionals, students, and families seeking a vibrant neighborhood, an easy commute to the Loop, and an active nightlife.
